A contaminated sites expert since 1990, Kathy is a Maritimer and graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in 1987 with a first class honours degree in Geological Sciences. She completed her Master’s degree at McGill in 1990 and has worked as an environmental consultant since then in both Montreal and Vancouver.

She is known as a realist, and for her ability to digest technical information quickly and prepare concise reports. She can be called upon to explain complicated regulatory issues and implications for clients’ properties.  Something of a specialist in forestry clients at PGL, her experience is quite broad.

She loves to travel and has taken on many projects which include site visits, often remote, across BC, Canada, and the US.  Kathy has two teenagers at home, so enjoys many solo activities including kayaking, hiking, cycling, and pottery, and is the home renovator in her family.
